Wednesday nights in October and early November.
I will introduce you to a new way to see, sketch and capture impressions QUICKLY!
Learn how to keep a travel sketchbook, and how to SEE in SHAPES, rather than lines and contours...(nothing wrong with lines, but you already see those!)
We explore new drawing media, too...I bring lots of my own stuff for you to try. 
Location: Joel's Coffee House, Lakeline Blvd., Austin, TX. Bring a friend, enjoy fun coffees and Joel's new salad and sandwich menu, along with the usual great handmade chocolates....oh yes, and we will sketch like crazy!

Colorado Full Moon Workshop 2016

V....Vaughan's 2016 COLORADO Workshop Itinerary


Date:Sunday, July 17 - Thursday, July, 21 2016
Place: Near Antonito, CO, 81120. Just over the border from Chama, NM. 
Taos is 70 miles away. I recommend planning a day in Taos after we paint! OR...
Taos Demo: Saturday, July 16, 12-3pm. Come watch my demo at Act I Gallery, Taos 
Lodging: options vary from great campgrounds to upscale resorts. Book ASAP
Email V.... for specific questions vvaughan8@yahoo.com



ITINERARY: DRAFT


WORKSHOP LOCATIONS will all be on or near the Conejos River, between Rocky Mountain Lodge and Antonito. This is a 30 mile span, but we will only go to one general area a day, and not do a lot of driving once we get there.
Three FULL DAYS will be divided into two daily sessions. Two half day sessions on the first and last days. Our sessions will include Artist Demonstrations by V….Vaughan, some hand-outs, brief discussion and theory instruction while V…. paints. An entire session or two will be devoted to SKETCHING: working either on canvas or in sketchbooks. Perspective Problems will be tackled! Capturing impressions QUICKLY… drawing without lines…I have a LOT to say about sketching!!!
The locations have wonderful variety. Things you will choose from: Mountain Vistas, River Color, Warm GREENS, Big Monsoon Skies, Sage Brush Meadows, Dark GREENS, Old Churches, Crumbled Adobe, Barns, Dude Ranch Corrals, Light GREENS, Cattle, Calves, Horses and Foals,  Cowboys and Cowgirls, and Cool GREENS.
A SPECIAL TOPIC I ALWAYS COVER IS HOW WE SEE LIGHT, and
WHAT IS COLOR, ANYWAY? We learn a lot about these by intense observation at the extreme ends of the day: SUNRISE and SUNSET. I have planned this class to coincide with the FULL MOON, so we will also observe and paint MOONRISE AND MOONSET, which will happen at the same time as the sunrise/sunset! It is a FASCINATING study and is sure to cause a leap forward in your painting progress, if you have never studied such things…I HAVE FUN WITH IT, TOO! Having taught high school artists for over 20 years, I know how to keep it simple, so that you can do what you like to do most….PAINT!!!
Here is a ROUGH DRAFT of our workshop…You will receive a detailed itinerary when we meet on Sunday. There will be maps and phone numbers and other details… OUR EXACT LOCATIONS WILL BE GIVEN SUNDAY!
